The Capitol Arts Center
The 2019 Kentucky Acoustic Music Festival will feature three bands:
The Golden Age, a new Nashville based band that features Matt Menefee and Bryan Simpson, previously with the critically acclaimed Cadillac Sky. Matt and Bryan are back making bluegrass that is “equal parts preservation and rebellion”.
The Mt. Victor Revue a local string band that captures the essence of songs from a variety of different places. There is no way to put the Revue into any genre, they play covers from artists ranging from The Four Tops to Elton John to Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, along with original songs from the various band members, all with a bluegrass slant.
Bowling Gypsies, a Bowling Green based group that draws influences from Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and Hot Club of France. The group connects with fans of gypsy jazz around the world, sharing unique string music written for jazz but informed by the “Django” tradition.
Proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorship from this year’s Kentucky Acoustic Music Festival will be used to ensure the Capitol continues to be a part of our history and remain central to the downtown Bowling Green culture.
